Literary Treks 110: It's All About Soul

Star Trek: Ex Machina by Christopher L. Bennett

The Motion Picture left Star Trek fans with as many questions as it answered, and when the story picked up in The Wrath of Khan, a lot of them did not truly get addressed leaving the audience to wonder what happened to the crew after Kirk said, "Out there..... thataway."

In this episode of Literary Treks, hosts Matthew Rushing and Dan Gunther discuss Christopher L. Bennett's Ex Machina. Well talk about what happens after The Motion Picture, the profound changes, the questions the book raises, the McCoy problem, fallout from TMP, true freedom, bad sales, and our ratings.

In the news segment, we have new blurbs for upcoming Voyager, Original Series, and Enterprise books to discuss.
